Sunday Saying

"In silence man can most readily preserve his integrity."
- Meister Eckhart

I think this quote can go along with the saying "Better to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool, than to open it and remove all doubt". A lot of the time online people take offense easily because they read something the wrong way. It's hard to convey expressions, sarcasm, tone, etc through typing so sometimes fights break out over something innocent. I try to be really careful about what I type so that it won't be read the wrong way. I think this can apply to real life too, many people don't think before blurting things out. Another quote that comes to mind with this is "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all".

True enough. I feel like I'm always stumbling over my words and coming across the wrong way. You're right, it's so hard to really know what people mean online. We keep trying. :)
